    Remaining balance is $250 and will be paid next week.
    That card was $12,000 in January. Whew!

    Thinking about what to do next year as far as savings goes.
    Looking forward to your plan.
    Is there still a balance on the last cc?

    today is week 40 and I saved $11.

    Next year I want to somehow modify the challenge to make it harder. Thinking on how I can do that.

    Week 34 - $19
    Week 35 - $18
    Week 36 - $17

    It wasn't difficult at all. At first I just did an electronic transfer each Wednesday manually into my Emergency Fund account from my paycheck. Then I realized I can pre program multiple transfers and schedule them, each with a different amount. So each month I just set up 4 automatic transfers in descending order. That way I only have to mess with it once a month.
